Since the launch of the first Creativity Festivity in 1992, the Durango Arts Center has strived to celebrate and nurture learning through the arts. The annual event celebrates children’s imaginative work in art, theatre, poetry and music. The 2017 theme of Creativity Festivity is Art Connects the World.
Throughout the two week celebration, DAC is pleased to host events and opportunities for local youth to share their work with the greater arts community in Durango. Activities during Creativity Festivity include an exhibit featuring work of k-12th grade students in the Barbara Conrad Gallery, a writing contest for 4th and 5th grades, Durango High School’s beloved annual poetry slam and a special youth theatre production of The Grinch.
DAC is thrilled to coordinate Creativity Festivity for the community to experience and access at free or very low cost admissions thanks to the generous funding of our community partners: Durango School District 9R, Durango Friends of the Arts, Coca-Cola of Durango-Farmington and family funds of the Community Foundation serving Southwest Colorado.
